STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN • by Bruce Stirling

“Is this the stairway to heaven?” Charlie asked the attending angel.

“Tis,” the angel replied. “Baggage?”

“Confessed before I died.”

“Then off you go.”

Charlie stepped onto the stairway, which promptly stopped.

“Darn,” the angel said, grabbing a wrench.

“I can wait,” Charlie said.

He pulled out a guitar.

“Don’t!” the angel said.

“Don’t what?”

“Sing that bloody song.”


Bruce Stirling‘s work appears in a variety of print and online publications.
